śruti pāya, lakṣmī nā pāya, ithe ki kāraṇa
bhaṭṭa kahe,--ihā praveśite nāre mora mana
śruti pāya—the Vedic authorities got admission; lakṣmī nā pāya—and the goddess of fortune could not get admission; ithe ki kāraṇa—what must be the reason for this; bhaṭṭa kahe—Veṅkaṭa Bhaṭṭa replied; ihā—this; praveśite—to enter; nāre—is not able; mora—my; mana—mind.
Having been asked by Caitanya Mahāprabhu why the goddess of fortune could not enter into the rāsa dance whereas the authorities on Vedic knowledge could, Veṅkaṭa Bhaṭṭa replied, "I cannot enter into the mysteries of this behavior."
